Rights Groups Condemn Egyptian Air Bombardments On Civilian Population In South Sudan
Feb 15, 2017(Nyamilepedia) —– The South Sudan International Advocacy for Human Rights, Global Partnership for Peace in South Sudan, Alliance for South Sudan, and Human Rights activists are hereby condemning in the strongest terms possible the Egyptian air attack on civilian population in Upper Nile region of Wau Chollo (Shilluk), South Sudan.
The Egyptian Air Force participation in South Sudan civil war is uncalled for as it has been visibly the case against South Sudanese citizens in opposition held territories in northern Upper Nile in recent days. We are calling the international community, UN Secretary General, African Union, European Union, and US President Donald Trump to stop the Egyptian bombardments of civilians in Upper Nile Region. We South Sudanese civil society are concerned that Egypt’s involvement in the South Sudan civil war may cause a regional conflict.
On humanitarian grounds, the South Sudanese civil organizations in the United States of America are issuing a strong condemnation against the move made by Egyptian government for using its advance war planes. In light of such unfortunate attitude displayed by the Egyptian government in the region, we the South Sudanese American human rights activists and civil society are calling the new US Administration, African Union, European Union, and United Nations to stop Egyptian air bombardments campaign.
